A Wednesday Night Dinner in Boston for 6

We were visiting Boston for a graduation. Our party of 6 showed up without reservations and were seated immediately. Excellent, friendly service. I enjoyed the roast chicken. Everyone ordered different entrees and all were satisfied. The beer selection included some locals brews. A couple of people... read more

We found this place while walking around. It was busy and noisy and we waited so long for our food the manager actually comped our meal because I told him we needed to be at the airport. The food is delicious and not your ordinary menu. I had the divine duck confit and goat cheese omelet te and my husband... More

I have been three times this year (and I live in Toronto) and never disappointed. Pastas are superb. Specials are awesome. It’s just a great restaurant with really good food, great ambience, and good prices. Recent beet salad was fantastic. Fish special was also great. I like the vibe of South Boston where it is situated. I go every time... More

The food was pretty good! I was pleasantly surprised with the artichoke appetizer. Our server was great. Very knowledgeable of the menu and made tasty recommendations. I would recommend wearing business casual or nicer. I went in khakis and a Tshirt and felt a little underdressed.

My husband and I got in to Boston late on a Friday and met our cousins for drinks & a quick bite here. We decided to share a few flat bread pizzas. They were amazing! Our cousins come all the time, so they wanted to share their experience and I am sure glad they did. They also have some great... More

First, I enjoyed the restaurant immensely! The food was quite tasty (I had the Caesar salad which was very well dressed and the swordfish with asparagus and potatoes which was quite tasty!) I loved the view of the park from the restaurant and I thought the wait staff was very attentive. My only complaint was the protions of the main... More

We all enjoyed our dinner at Stella and while the restaurant was very white and edgy inside it was surprisingly noisy. So be forewarned it is not a place to come and have an intimate conversation. We had to shout to the couple with us but across the table to be heard. We all started with the salad special of... More

I dined here with a large group on a business trip. We did have one local with us who said they dine here every week and I can see why. The service was impeccable and the food was very tasty. Although we were in a back room I could tell that it's not a quiet restaurant. The whole place was... More

Went on Saturday night? Place was packed and was fortunate to get a seat at the bar. Seemed like a mix of local and new diners. Service was efficient and food was relish. I had 3 apps, steak tartare, fried artichokes and the muscles. The first 2 were perfect

This is a local for a friend of ours, we were taken there for dinner on our second last night in Boston. It was amazing. We had tempura artichoke hearts to start, which were mouth wateringly delicious! The Bolognese is delicious - I had the salmon special which was nice, but I wished I ordered the Bolognese after tasting my... More
